Welcome home! Those words ring especially true when your new home and community reflect a lifestyle that supports you and your family to thrive and flourish.
As Real Estate Advisors who pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, we help people look at their options. Buying a home is the single most important financial decision you will make that affects your quality of life for years to come. We meet with customers daily at the HomeStore and here is what we find are the most important reasons to buy a new home.
Why buy a new home in a master-planned community?
1. Planned neighborhood and amenities
A master-planned community is an exceptionally well-designed collection of homes constructed by a vetted builder. These communities contain amenities that support health, wellness and leisure, while providing convenient access to retailers, schools and community facilities.
The community’s control over zoning and new phases of development ensures that the neighborhood develops according to the vision of the master plan. A community focused on health and wellness provides access to green spaces, playgrounds, walking and cycling trails, as well as athletic facilities for all ages. Wide, tree-lined streets, community events and gathering places make it easy to meet and mingle with neighbours. Children build friendships that last a lifetime.
2. You can personalize your new home
After you have identified which community you want to live in and who the builder for your dream home is, personalizing its design and features is the next step. Personalization ensures that you build the home you want within the budget you have to work with.
When you work with a builder that has streamlined the design process, your needs and specifications are considered every step of the way. Personalization packages that offer different specialized options guide you in selecting what is best for your lifestyle and budget.
3. Your home is move-in ready
Before you move into your home, your builder will conduct regular inspections and updates to keep you in the loop. You will enjoy peace of mind knowing your home is built according to your design specifications and applicable building codes.
When you move in, you can spend your days meeting your neighbours, decorating and accessorizing your home. Rather than worrying about the cost of fixing deficiencies. A new GableCraft home comes with an improved Deficiency Program as well as a builder warranty and the latest safety features. In British Columbia, new homes constructed under a building permit applied for on or after July 1, 1999 are covered by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. If you buy a resale or older home, you take the risk of making costly repairs. Repairing a roof or dealing with electrical or plumbing issues can set you back tens of thousands of dollars.
With a new home, you choose your finishes and features. You avoid the inconvenience of renovating after you take possession. It’s nice to know your house will be move-in ready.
4. After you buy you are taken care of
Your home-buying experience extends well after you move in. With a home in a master-planned community, you become part of a family of owners. Your builder’s service and warranty department will address your construction-related inquiries.
When you buy a re-sale or old home, you are on your own after completing final inspections and the ink dries on your signed contract.
5. You can improve your return on investment
Buying a new home could improve the return on our monetary investment as well as on your time—no more pounding the pavement in a futile search or bidding war.
The satisfaction and happiness when you first walk into your dream home make it all worth it.
Over the years, we have striven to improve our process and what GableCraft Homes offers when it comes to important components of your home—from the Deficiency Program, supplies and resources, to standard finishes. It is so wonderful when our clients are a big part of the curation and personalization of their new home. We know it’s the little details that make the biggest difference.
